(Re)Generations: Challenging Scientific Racism in Hawaiʻi
February 20 – October 24, 2021
J. M. Long Gallery
Explore a collection of photographs and plaster busts created by anthropologist Louis R. Sullivan as a tool to measure and classify the physical traits of a supposedly “pure” Native Hawaiian race. Despite its problematic racist origins, the Sullivan Collection has taken on new life as one of the Museum’s primary sources for genealogical research, and as a vehicle for rediscovering ancestors and genealogical connections.

Expedition Dinosaur: Rise of the Mammals
October 2 to January 23, 2022
Castle Memorial Building
Sixty-six million years ago, some of the most iconic dinosaurs ruled the Earth: Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, Edmontosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, the curious oviraptorsaur Anzu and more. These creatures survived and thrived right up until the catastrophic event that changed the course of life on Earth. This exhibit will focus on the day before and the years after the massive extinction event. You will meet the dinosaurs of the Cretaceous period up close on the day before the extinction, learn the details of the asteroid impact that changed our Earth forever, and discover the rise of the mammals in the aftermath and recovery of Earth’s ecosystem.
